Episcia Emerald Velvet
Common Name: Episcia Emerald Velvet
Episcia Emerald Velvet is a tropical trailing species that, when well-taken care of, will reward the owner with beautiful foliage and bright, beautiful colors. Partial shade and bright, indirect lighting is preferable as lighting that is too strong will damage the plant. This species works great in a terrarium setting and enjoys being kept moist at all times but will not take well to remaining in standing water or getting soggy. Leaf edges will crisp and may brown if humidity levels are not sufficient.
- Great for container gardening.
- Plants may grow differently depending on the environment in which they are grown in.
- Additional research should be done to provide optimum growing conditions for the plant to thrive.
